    Hi, I'm having a bit trouble trying to install/compile Spim MIPS compiler. Apparently I'm supposed to edit a file Imakefile to tell where to install program manuals, applications files, etc. For example:

    # Full path for the directory that will hold the executable files:
    BIN_DIR = /usr/local/bin

    # Full path for the directory that will hold the exception handler:
    EXCEPTION_DIR = /usr/local/lib

    # Full path for the directory that will hold the man files:
    MAN_DIR = /usr/man/mann

    I tried replacing the paths behind the equals sign with my Documents, Applications, even Desktop yet It won't compile when I try.

    Compiling not fun.

    Who are these people that enjoy compiling these programs. OS X has a GUI. Why make every downloader jump through these hoops. For the people that like command line, use Linux/UNIX, For the rest of us, give us a double clickable application that is ready to go. I want to start using an application immediately, not spend time editing MAKE files.
    Thanks
    Kevin
